This week I obtained a L327 made by Coleman for the Sunshine Safety Lamp Co.  Comparing it to the ICCC Coleman book it appears all correct as an early version with the "Sunshine Safety Lamp Co." stamping in the baffle plate.  Has the correct base rest, vent nut and generator with wedge compression fitting along with right filler cap and other features so I think it is all correct.  Looks to have mostly dirt so should clean up pretty well I think.  I want to study on this one a while before I dive into renovating it...don't want to "over restore".

Question for the group...are these uncommon or just something I have not seen before?

Not so much "Rare" but certainly "hard to find".  That one llooks in great shape.  I've taken an interest to them as I live near KC and enjoy exploring our industrial past.

Thanks for the info on the ring Steve...good to know...actually it's just one ring...I photographed it on the lantern as well as in the separate photo so folks could see it close up.

What should the original ring look like?

Steve:

Oh, instead of the vent nut loop you are talking about the o ring looking piece at the top of the generator wedge, right?...If it is a separate part I suspect it was to take up some slack for the wedge to seal...I'll take a look at that to see if it is removable or a part of the wedge...I did notice the generator nut did not screw down as much as I would have anticipated.  Stand by and later today I'll get some more photos.
